Here you can request military service/personnel records. Other military historical information is available such as daily combat reports etc. but you will usually have to go to the archive and research personally. Go to http://www.archives.gov/ to start. I found my father's World War II enlistment information by typing in his last name in the search box on their web site. This database contains records of approximately nine million men and women who enlisted in the United States Army, including the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps. Although incomplete, the records contain data for a majority of the enlistments in the United States Army during World War II.
Includes online bookshelves, artwork and images, lineage and honors.
Here is a direct link to Armor-Calvary lineage (http://www.army.mil/cmh/books/Lineage/arcav/arcav.htm) which will give you a history of how the armored divisions we know today were initiated and organized.
I have received dozens of emails with pictures of medals and ribbons form relatives of war veterans who want to know what heraldic achievement they represent. The purpose of this site is to provide information on United States Army heraldic entitlements; how they are displayed, and how and why it is worn.
